Difference between Jenkins log and generated package (lib prefix)

Hi, I am trying to debug a failure in setting up the CMake variables for library installation.

  1. I am inspecting the generated package (ros-kinetic-eigenpy, version 1.6.5-1) by installing in a new Kinetic docker. The pkg-config eigenpy.pc is installed in /opt/ros/kinetic/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/pkgconfig, while the library itself is in /opt/ros/kinetic/lib. This would suggest an issue setting up the CMAKE_INSTALL_LIBDIR.
  2. After reviewing the output of the latest Jenkins job, it appears there it correctly installs without the x86_64-linux-gnu prefix (in devel_isolated).

Am I missing something obvious here why on Jenkins it appears to install correctly but the packaged version on ros-testing has it using the prefix?

I appreciate any insights

The job output you're linking is for a devel job which tests the latest version of packages in a source repository. The job which builds the Kinetic eigenpy debian package is

You can also run a local copy of the binarydeb job using the ros_buildfarm library:

Thank you - this is what I was looking for.

It turns out the original problem is related to an old version of debhelper on kinetic. Versions >10.2.1 solve the problem. I will work on a workaround.

@nuclearsandwich: I have described the issue I am trying to debug with references in It boils down to the use of GNUInstallDirs using old versions of debhelper on 16.04 appending the architecture to lib. As such the pkgconfig files end up in lib/arch/pkgconfig while the library ends up in lib/. Is there a recommended workaround? (This is a REP136 released third-party package)
